This is TagHub!

To draw a tag or not draw a tag? That is the question. Western big game hunting research has always been something that puzzles the mind and with the influx of hunters into the systems of several western states, the mind puzzle is getting harder to figure out. TagHub is designed to help you narrow your big game hunting tag search and provide you with the best hunting content anywhere.


Western Hunting Research – State by State Breakdowns

Here at Eastmans’ we spend as much time, or more, doing our research on drawing tags for elk, mule deer, pronghorn (antelope), moose, sheep, and mountain goat as we spend in the field. In fact, over 2,000 man-hours go into the research we provide to our members in the Members Research Section (MRS) in the Journals (Eastmans’ Hunting Journal & Eastmans’ Bowhunting Journal) and in TagHub, the online research tool that is a monster of data and content. The end result is upwards of 750,000 data points of research to help us all draw the tags we want for the fall hunting season this year and in the years to come.

Since western states each have their own systems of records keeping and reporting, we streamline the information for our members and for ourselves so that we each don’t have to decode harvest statistics, draw odds, preference point systems, hunters per square mile, three-year success rates of hunters in the field, season dates, trophy forecasts, tag quotas, license/tag types, terrain difficulty, private land access programs, bull-to-cow and buck-to-doe ratios, number of hunter days in the field on average to be successful per unit, and more.

TagHub has taken our popular Eastmans’ MRS to new levels with its ability to filter data so you can narrow down your application strategy quicker by the criteria you deem necessary.

If you aren’t the type to geek out on sortable data electronically, we’ve also provided you with the full-length tables per species per state that you can print off and hold in your hands on your kitchen table. These tables have exponentially more information in them than we can fit in the pages of the Journals.

TagHub is the comprehensive research tool where we can house all of our data and analysis with no limitations on space and size of the information we provide.


Expert Analysis

Within each state we also provide expert analysis per species based on several factors including our own in-the-field experience, wildlife and land management agency biologists, game wardens, and land managers we communicate with on a regular basis, resident successful hunters in each state, sportsmen’s organizations, and the list goes on and on.


Watch Eastmans’ TV Shows and Videos in TagHub as a Member

TagHub is much more than data, maps, and charts, though. TagHub is also a house of western big game hunting content where you can lose yourself in Eastmans’ Hunting TV even if you don’t have the Outdoor Channel in your home. We put up new episodes of Eastmans’ Hunting TV before they air on the Outdoor Channel and you can watch them as often as you wish. 

We also include our popular online series, Beyond The Grid, our bird hunting series Wingmen, and our videos on western big game hunting that used to only be available on DVD. That’s right, Eastmans’ former DVD-only videos are on TagHub, too!
